 This is a fabulous bag!  Where do I order one?   Grin  I really like your cleverness in turning jeans into a bag - just wonderful.   Cheesy

This is really cool!  How wide did you cut the strips of denim?  I love the bag.

Love your bag!  The waist band top and braided handles are genius!

Great bag!  I really like the use of the waistband and the braided handles.

That's brilliant use of an old pair of jeans.  I particularly like the way you have used the waistband as the top of the bag - how clever!

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments, glad you like it  Smiley

The lengths I cut were 1cm wide and the hook i used was a size 10mm/N The yarn dosen't fray when you first cut it and work with it, it's gone like that because it's been in my work bag for a couple of days.



I didn't find it hard to work with at all, this could be partially due to the fact that the jeans were well worn and not the heavy weight fabric when new -so quite soft, I wouldn't want to work with new, thick denim in this way.

Totally cool, RT!  I join in with the throng with praise for the braided handles and use of the waistband!  The denim flower embellishment is a nice touch as well.  You are so crafty!  Grin
